5.0 out of 5 starsWisdom for both children and parents
Reviewed in the United States on August 7, 2017
This is a story of gaining wisdom. The fact that Suzanne turns 13 and no one knows including her own mother has such an impact. You have a very wise mother who has several children of her own who gives to the neighbors children every day without complaint and the fact that she helps Suzanne's mom on her special day gain some insight is very heartwarming! Thank you for such a wonderful short story Marianne!
